Kitchen/Diner


The kitchen (31 square meters) is bright and airy with doors to the front of the house and onto the patio at the rear. It is fully fitted, with a U shaped kitchen area with lots of storage space plus a huge buffet/sideboard. The equipment is all modern - electric multi-function cooker, cooker hood, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. There's also a microwave oven, food processor, slow cooker, coffee percolator, kettle and raclette cooker (the washing machine and tumble dryer are in a separate utility room which also houses the central heating boiler). See below for a full list.

The wooden ceiling is high, showing off the exposed beams and a nice feature is the old bread oven with its arched roof. Sadly it can't be used for baking bread today but it's a quaint reminder of the history of the house. The back windows and door have electric shutters. All windows and doors are double-glazed and the floor is of under-floor heated ceramic tiles.

The chunky country-style oak table comfortably seats six but could easily stretch to eight people (there are extra chairs). All kitchen utensils, pots and pans, crockery, cutlery and glasses are provided, as is everything you could possibly need to make your stay enjoyable and hassle free. We have provided for twelve people so you can have guests round - or just skip the washing up for a day!
